Welcome friends, to the Bored Wine Company

We are sourcing some of the world's best wines, bottling them, and wrapping them with the world's most exclusive apes.

This Run: The Mutant Vintage

Bored Wine Bottles

Our lineage

It was 2041, and some Apes have spent a decade hanging out in their comfortable Yacht Club nestled in the heart of the digital Everglades.

Ape #1839, known to his friends and many admirers as Dionysus, learned about the legend of The Genesis Grape from an obscure message board. He pulled together a rag-tag group company of adventurers who set sail, embarking on an epic quest to find and restore this fabled vine.

Our intrepid simian seafarers braved untold dangers and suffered unimaginable hardships (including patchy wi-fi) before finding themselves washed up on the shores of an undiscovered continent. And this is where our real story begins, for it is was these mythical shores that witnessed the birth of the Bored Wine Company.

Revelations and Returns

As Dionysus and his band explored, the land gradually revealed the crumbling remains of a fallen civilization. Among the ruins, a network of vineyards that had thrived untended, their ample fruit dancing danced invitingly in the light breeze.

Dionysus and his team got to work, knowing that these were the fabled Genesis Grapes, and they will produce sumptuous, investment-grade fine wine.

After months of toil, The Apes returned from the wilderness in a ship laden with cases of exceptional wine. They created the Bored Wine Company to bring the world of fine wine to the NFT Everglades.

Important Information

This project is not affiliated with the Bored Ape Yacht Club, in any way, shape, or form. The Bored Wine Company was created and is operated by WiV Technology.
This NFT is a digital image backed by real physical wines stored in a bonded warehouse in London, UK. This NFT is representative of one case comprised of six bottles of wine.

OPTIONAL EXTRA: You can also receive a physical bottle of wine with your purchase. Global shipping complications mean that this wine is NOT the same make or year as the wines we store on your behalf at our bonded warehouse because it will need to be shipped by a third party. Depending on your global location and local shipping rules it could take up to two months to arrive following the purchase of your NFT.
We will endeavor to ensure that it will be infinitely quaffable though and will strive to get it to you as quickly as possible. See our FAQs for more information.

REMEMBER: If you don't fill in your postal address, (Section 2), we can't ship your 1 physical bottle to you.

You will be able to acquire your stored wines from the warehouse in the future. We are just working on the logistics and will update you as soon as we are clear on how to achieve this on a global scale.

The NFT also contains a wearable item (Work in Progress) that can be claimed by heading over to our Discord once you have purchased your wine. These wearables will be based on your NFT/wine bottle design so that you can show off to everyone in the metaverse.

The Bored Wine Company has been developed by the team behind WiV, a fast-growing blockchain-based trading platform for unique assets.

What does my NFT represent?

This NFT is a digital image backed by real physical wines stored in a bonded warehouse in London, UK. This NFT is representative of one case (six bottles of wine). It is also accompanied by an optional physical bottle of wine with your purchase. This wine will be sent to you within three weeks of your purchase of the NFT (although it could take up to two months to arrive because of local shipping rules).

Why is the wine that is being sent to me different to the wine being stored on my behalf?

The wine that will be held on your behalf will not only be resplendent in the likeness of your Ape, it will also be capped in a specially Bored Wine Co. foil and bottled in 100% recycled glass.

There are a lot of challenges that come with trying to get a bottle of wine from one part of the world to another which basically means it would take a long time to get wine from where it is bottled and labeled to our customers around the world.

To get around this challenge, we have turned to a global third-party wine distribution network and will have them send you a bottle of wine complete with the Ape’s label as quickly as they can. It won’t be the same investment quality wine, but it will be good to drink and cool to hold.

Why is the wine received NOT the same make and year as my stored wines?

This wine will vary varies whether you are in Europe or America depending on where you are in the world, but it will be a wine that is ready for you to drink as soon as it arrives (although if you decide to drink it, it may be worth letting it settle for a couple of days to avoid bottle shock). Examples include Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, etc...

The design of the label on the physical bottle may also differ slightly from the labels on the stored wines. We will make it as close to the original as possible, but we also want to make sure so that you can get your hands on your physical bottle of wine as quickly as possible and it would be impractical and prohibitively expensive to move investment level wine globally without adding considerably to project costs.

How much does it cost?

The cost to submit your ape to the project is 0.2 ETH.

Where and why is my wine stored?

We will store your wine in independent, centralized, professionally managed, and fully insured storage facilities. This is to giving you confidence that the wine we are offering our clients has been properly looked after and that movement during any trading processes is kept to a minimum. Our platform will soon be able to give you a clear understanding of where your specific cases are, how the market is evolving and where the opportunities could be.

How long until my wine is bottled and stored for me?

It will take approximately 90 days from the minting of your NFT to bottling the actual wine, and sending it to storage.

How do we know this wine is legit?

We have spent our careers sourcing the best wines from some of the smallest and largest wineries from around the world. We give expert wine producers the opportunity to sell their wine at a fair, transparent price. Because the wines listed on our platform have their provenance transparently managed on the tamper-resistant blockchain, they can be sold with assurance and traded with confidence without the high trading fees that are usually associated with wine trades.

Building on our existing relationship with OpenSea we will make it simple to trade the NFT that is associated with your case of wine. OpenSea also hosts auctions for WiV's selection of investment level fine wine and makes it simple to investigate the opportunities in new vintages and grapes.

Why invest in wine?

The market for investment-grade fine wine has been rising over the past twenty years. As an asset class, it compares favorably to prime property and equity markets, while providing a greater degree of price stability.

Current wine trades involve extensive paper trails to prove provenance and ownership. Managing trades via the blockchain means that ownership can be transferred at the touch of a button, reducing administrative time and cost.

By creating a transparent global marketplace for wine, we are making it easier for producers to offer their wine, distributors to know where specific cases are and buyers to understand the provenance of the wine they are buying.
